Santorini, Villa Mansion 1878
This fully restored, traditional two-storey Mansion dates back to 17th Century and offers a luxury escape to those seeking to experience the pace and charm of life on Santorini away from the crowds. The property is two minute walk from the village square with its few infamous tavernas along a winding road with cream and white washed walls and bright colorful flowers. The original structure has been sensitively renovated to its original splendor, retaining the original layout and traditional features. Gracious proportions and weathered building materials speak for themselves! Guests can enjoy the privacy of the walled courtyard, relax and sunbathe by the swimming pool or retire upstairs to the roof-top terraces offering diners with panoramic views over the rooftops and views of the vineyards, where wine tasting excursions can be arranged. The ground floor served as the traditional canava wine cellar and workshop of the Mansion. Cylindrical troughs sunk into the ground once used for distilling the Vinsanto, provide unusual lighting features to the interior. Three large barn-style doors lead from the courtyard into the various living areas and a smooth-edged carved interior provides a cool and relaxing haven during the hot summer days. The well equipped traditional-style central kitchen leads into the beautifully lit dining room, perfect for leisurely meals with friends and family. Arched doorways on either side of the kitchen allows for an easy flow through the house. Inside the smooth curved walls, feature alcoves displaying carefully chosen objects brought to life by a blend of intense natural light and mood-lighting. Minimalist interior decor with fine antique pieces help to create a unique living atmosphere. This property once owned by one of the most powerful families on the island is perfect for large families, wedding parties, a group of friends, or perhaps two families that require independent living space without compromising privacy and comfort.
